Goodwill Towards Men

We have a holiday in the United States where we celebrate Peace on Earth, Goodwill towards Men.
It's name is Christmas.
It used to be a pagan celebration, then was morphed into observation of the birth of Jesus Christ.
Now we have an imaginary fat elf named Santa Claus who presumably brings gifts to children and places them under a decorated Christmas tree in their homes.
What the hell does this have to do with our Constitutional separation of church and state?   Nothing...., but  presumptuous, full-of-themselves people who don't have a clue, like those NPR Freaks and Governor Chafee of Rhode Island, get all twisted about calling things "Christmas" Parties or "Christmas" Trees.  Hey... if you're against Goodwill Toward Men, then knock yourselves out.
The Nanepashemet ruling on this issue is that Christmas is a secular, state holiday, when we all try to be nice to each other.  The fact that many Christians celebrate this as a religious holiday should not be the overiding issue.
Peace on Earth, Goodwill.... yes, even Goodwill to stupid Liberals.
